Almost made out of the parking lot..

Went to leave work today, put it in gear gave it a bit of gas and pop it went I had no power steering or brakes. I pull it forward into a spot get out and it's pissing fluid out. Pop the hood and start looking at the lines and the high pressure hose felt loose, I give it a tug and it comes right out of the fitting on the pump. Luckily I got a co worker who lives close to give me a ride home went and picked up the hose and a new pump for the hell of it. I'm glad it let loose in the parking lot instead of when I was going down the highway. Should be easy to swap out the hose in the parking lot. I'm hoping I don't have to bleed the system I only drove about 50 ft or so.

Same thing happen to me and the same fitting let go also. I'm also sure that you lost all the fluid also. As for bleeding it all you do is add fluid and turn the wheel from lock to lock.

Well the fitting didn't seem like it was wanting to come out of the pump so I jammed the line back in filled it up, jacked up the front pumped the brakes and ran the steering through and drove it home. Didn't leak but wanted to change the hose anyway so like I said couldn't get the fitting out pulled the pump and have a damn hard time getting the pulley off going to go get a puller in the morning didn't want to mess up the pulley trying to get it off. Hopefully Ill have it fixed quickly need the truck tomorrow afternoon.

Mine went out in a parking lot too. So i made a cardboard and grease sandwich and put tht under my tires. (2 pieces of cardboard with grease in the middle) you can go from lock to lock with ease. especially if you have 38" tires.

Got the hose replaced and went ahead and replaced the pump also now I have what I believe is air in the system. I tried the whole deal or removing the hose from the hydra boost and turning the wheel while pumping the brakes and all that did was waste a quart of good fluid any ideas? Or should I just let it work itself out?

Just try turning lock to lock for a while to purge the air out and make sure you keep enough fluid in the res. I wouldnt say you wasted a good qt of fluid, id imagine it helped flush out the remaining old fluid. A typical flush uses up a good 3qts of good fluid, lol

Yea I know it holds more than a qt just didn't want to waste that much since I recently flushed all the old fluid out. I just want it to stop making the whining noise. Oh well I'll mess with it some more.
